The 4th edition of "Finnie's Handling the Young Child with Cerebral Palsy at Home" has been updated to reflect the current practices of today. It aims to help parents assist their child with cerebral palsy (CP) towards achieving the most comfortable independence in all activities. It is hoped to show how, by using typical parenting skills, which involve guiding and exposing a child to develop through challenging experiences, the child with CP will also develop. The book is also intended to help professionals and other carers new to this field understand, support and encourage young children with CP and their families. Over the years since the first edition of this book was written ideas on appropriate therapies have changed and developed. Similarly opinion on early intervention has changed and the method of delivery of service has in some places moved from centralisation to home-based or community provision. The emphasis of this new edition however remains on a holistic approach to the child's needs seeing the difficulties in relation to the overall development of the child as a unique person from childhood to adulthood.

Review quote

The information in the fourth edition of Finnie's Handling the Young Child with Cerebral Palsy at Home has been extensively rewritten and much new information has been added. Throughout the book the emphasis has been changed from infant to child and the way problems and interventions change as the child grows. Overall the book is very well done and clearly written, definitely worth getting the new edition in consumer health libraries. Consumer Connection, September 2009
